With the simple language and candid writing style, with a blend of various themes, it’s a book that you are going to love. There were few spelling errors that can be taken care of.

Review:

“Aulaakh Niranjan”!!!!

Some books give us answers we always wanted to know, and this is one such book. A book that talks about the life of Aghori’s. We have always known them as they’re always angry, but there is a lot more to learn.

Witness the journey of Faith, adventures, spirituality, mystery and Magic. It’s a journey of Subraiya or Subbu who has a deep desire to know more about the Aghori Sadhus / babas.

With a unique plot and descriptive narration, with a backdrop of Uttarakhand, written in an autobiographical form, Subbu’s quest to learn more about them and help his Guru becomes the basis of this unique journey of adventures and experiences.

The thought of having a conversation with Aghori’s gives us a chill, and Subbu’s decision to live with them for few days comes as a surprise that will make the readers curious.

The way the story started and proceeded adding mystery and adventure along with a lil fear makes this book fascinating. One could relate to Subbu’s journey, his quests and his curiosity.

The frightening activities that he witnessed, the process he went through while carrying Mantras for his Guru, the spiritual and surprising experience he had living with Aghori’s and knowing about their life and powers are going to astound us.

Read it a bit slow, there’s a lot more to discover. Divided into 19 chapters, it’s a short but heavy read with a smooth flow of words. The use of Hindi words, the way Aghori’s answered Subbu’s questions, the journey they shared was amazing.

The well-developed characters sharing their journey makes this book more interesting. Subbhu’s character is of course my favourite character. I liked his curiosity, patience, his helpful nature and his desire to know more.

With the simple language and candid writing style, with a blend of various themes, it’s a book that you are going to love. There were few spelling errors that can be taken care of. There’s drama, there’s a mystery, there’s a different experience that awaits for the readers.

If you want to know more about the life of Aghori’s, do not skip this one. An amazing book!
